    One of the things I like so much about Quenby Olson s stories is the way she takes familiar tropes and makes them unexpected In the case of The Bride Price, it s a character who often appears in historical romances as the hero the Rake But Olson s rake is not a hero In fact, he s the villain who sets the story in motion ruining Emily and forcing her into a marriage of convenience with William, a man who ought to be below her station The Bride Price is a lovely story of finding unexpected love and friendship I loved watching William and Emily s relationship develop, loved the positive way marriage is treated in the book The plot that unfolds with the rake Marbley at its center was tense enough that I was on the edge of my seat u...

    After a heartless rake ruins her reputation, Emily Collicott retreats from her first season in London back to her family s home Faced with the choice of marrying a stranger quickly, a situation arranged by her shady father, or never marrying at all, Emily makes the choice that will ensure she, and later her sisters, are taken care of Despite the circumstances of their marriage, she soon finds happiness with her new husband, William, and believes the lot she s drawn is a good one after all But when the same man who ruined her suddenly reappears, he threatens to destroy every ounce of goodness in her life What I love about Quenby Olson s historical fiction is that it takes the elegance and intrigue of the 19th century and approaches it from an angle the modern reader will appreciate So often beloved classics, ...

  7. Derek Sanderson says:

    Very light hearted and entertaining I can t abide sappy or explicit romance books, so this one was a breath of fresh air The reader enjoys a clean tale of love that develops and thrives against the odds, and defeats the vile, arrogant attempts to destroy it A pity there was such a time as this, when wealthy overlords were able to torment the mainstream classes, often without repercussions Then again, in some ways, it ...

    I picked this unfamiliar author from s Prime Reading list, and it turned out to be a good choice because the story line is different than the usual Regency novel At her first come out dance, Emily is ruined by a kiss from a handsome, popular viscount Forced by her father into an arranged marriage to a stranger, she leaves the life of a gentlewoman to become a poor farm wife who is not sure how to boil an eg...
